We already know that art nouveau can be found at the Alberta iela, but is that all you can find in Riga?
How to recognize art nouveau buildings and what vocabulary to use if you want to describe them?
We will find answers to these and many other questions during our walk around the city together with our museum educators. During the guided tour we will visit the most important art nouveau architectural monuments and learn the most characteristic traits of this style.
